Abstract Details


To evaluate the safety and efficacy of the topography guided ablation (tgLASIK) of the Wavelight in LASIK for hyperopia and/or hyperopic astigmatism.

Setting: Eye Institute, Athens, Greece


We prospectively evaluated 328 consecutive LASIK cases for hyperopia with or without astigmatism with tgLASIK. Mean preoperative sphere was +3.29 diopters (D) (+0.75 to +8.25) and mean cylinder was -1.95 (0 to -6.00). Flaps were created with the Intralase FS60 or the Wavelight FS200 femtosecond lasers. Parameters evaluated were age, pre and post-operative refractive error, UCVA, BSCVA, flap diameter and thickness, topographic changes, higher order aberration changes and low contrast sensitivity.


Mean follow-up was 36 months: 315 cases were available for follow at 24 months. UDVA improved from 0.55 to 0.82. 78% of the eyes were in between +/- 0.50 diopters (D) range, 84% were in the +/- 1.00 diopters range of the goal. SE: improved from +3.29 to +0.19 and cyl from -1.95 to -0.75. No significant complications were encountered in this limited group.


. tgLASIK appears to be safe and effective in the correction of hyperopia and/or hyperopic astigmatism. FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE?: ... travel has been funded, fully or partially, by a company producing, developing or supplying the product or procedure presented
